Change.org: Reinstate the person you fired for letting your users know that you're going to work with corporations and the far-right

To be delivered to Ben Rattray and Change.org

Petition Statement

Your decision to start hosting campaigns by right-wing organizations and corporations is bad enough, but your decision to fire the worker who made sure you couldn't pull the wool over our eyes is just unbelievable.

You need to reinstate that person right away, or provide
an ample severance package if they (understandably) don't want to help you shill for causes that they and your users don't believe in.
There are currently 483 signatures. NEW goal - We need 500 signatures!

Petition Background

Change.org is changing for the worse -- and just fired the one person on their staff who tried to make sure you knew about it.

As the Huffington Post reported, "Change.org, the online social movement company founded on progressive values, has decided to change its advertising policy to allow for corporate advertising, Republican Party solicitations, astroturf campaigns, anti-abortion or anti-union ads and other controversial sponsorships, according to internal company documents."

Huffpo also reported that Change.org wasn't planning to tell its users about these changes, so they promptly fired the employee who leaked the info.

Tell Change.org to reinstate the fired staffer right away.
